Oracle Solaris 11: CVE-2012-5887: Vulnerability in Apache Tomcat

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) November 17, 2012 May 29, 2017 May 29, 2017

Description

The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 does not properly check for stale nonce values in conjunction with enforcement of proper credentials, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests.
